CINCINNATI — Firefighters ran into some issues putting out a 'stubborn' two-alarm house fire Wednesday morning in North Avondale, according to officials.

Firefighters with the Cincinnati Fire Department were called to a house fire at 4021 Rosehill Dr. just after midnight Wednesday. When they arrived on scene, they found a fire on the first floor and spread all the way up to the attic. Once inside the house, firefighters saw the fire was in the basement as well.

Cincinnati Fire Chief Roy Winston said their equipment ran out of water pressure which slowed down their operations. The limited water pressure and large fire made the officials call for all firefighters to get out of the building for their safety. Fire officials had to call Cincinnati Waterworks to increase the water pressure.

The house was under renovation so no one was inside when the fire started. The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.
